"Go Garden"...

Saturday, October 11 from 9AM-2:30PM, two Master Gardeners, Mary Jacobs and Jordan Dawn, will be sharing their gardens and the organic practices used in achieving the production of various fruits and vegetables.  This will be a great opportunity to learn by observing and to ask questions on how to begin gardening or to be more successful in what you have growing.

Mary will also talk about chickens and the eggs that she harvests as a result.  You will be able to see the creative way in which she has incorporated chickens into her garden.

and "Go Green"

We will begin the afternoon with a healthy lunch prepared by our Oregon State University nutrition expert on the South Coast, Stephanie Polizzi, and then she will teach us about the value of eating your greens and just how they affect our general health with NO--the nitric oxide they provide and the role that this substance plays in eating more healthfully.
